Previous Port: Tenants Harbor (Maine Part 1)
August 9-13, 2005
Anchorage: N44009.117 W068037.452
We maneuvered through sometimes thick fog in route to this beautiful anchorage. There were no lobster buoys to block our entrance and that was a big plus. The anchorage was a little on the bumpy side during the day, because of the lobster boats going through, but the beauty outweighed any discomfort. The nights were calm enough for good sleeping and oh what marvelous temperatures. If the scenery wasn't enough, I could always call home to hear that the temperature was 100+ while we were enjoying the lower 70's.
We felt quite secure in our spot between Bold, Camp, and Devil Islands. These islands are private but Hells Half Acre, in the middle of the three, is state-owned. It was a great place for island exploring and just simply enjoying nature. We shared the anchorage with sailboats, windjammers, and kayakers. Kayaking seems to be a big thing in Maine.
